I see a lot of ads for various beauty products that promise to reduce wrinkles, etc. It's hard to know what's real and what's hype. Are there any ingredients I should look for that will actually help my skin age more slowly?

Unfortunately, there are no scientific studies that prove any of these anti-aging creams work. So, I cannot recommend any anti-aging cream or ingredient in them that will make your skin age more slowly. Sorry!
